Need Help! New to this forum ! Equipment / Instruction question!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone , Im new to this site so please bare with me . Okay ill give you a quick run down about myself. Im 13 , a leftie , i dont really know my handicap but since ive only been playing for 2 years and never really kept score until my last round of 18 which i shot a 99 but i did happen to get 12 on a hole due to a few mis swings etc. i hit my driver around 250-265 on a good day. I used to have Nike VRS irons but sold them a few days ago to fund my new irons i wanted to buy. my thinking was they were more of a big game improving iron and i wanted to take a step up into something a little more intermediate instead of a beginner iron. I usually order my clubs online from Global Golf. since i sold my VRS irons i Ordered Callaway's Razr X Irons. I just went to the range today and hit some balls with them. I Find i lost A LOT of distance with each club and the ball looked to have A LOT of spin on them. It was "Balooning" with my Old VRS irons i would hit my 5 Iron around 200 - 210 and Now my 5 iron is barley going 180. I dont know what to do! I dont know if it was just a bad day at the range but i feel like i made a horrible choice... any suggestions on what to do ? Any tips ? Any help would be Great! Thanks!

It can take time to get used to new irons. I myself had the same problem initially when I switched to my ZB's, but I love them now. It can take some time to get yourself mentally adjusted to new sticks. But how is your contact? Are you hitting your new irons clean and still losing yards on them? How does a well struck shot with the Callaways feel compared to the Nikes?

My contact from my view is good , ive had maybe 1 hit off the toe out of 10 hits so my contact i believe is good , the feel on these feel umm more umm well off the nikes they felt more trampoline like off the face and the callaway's seem more of a solid feel less "hot" off the face

Your nike irons may have had strong lofts and/or different shaft lengths than the callaways. But make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get acclimated to the new set before you're making an judgements.

I just switched to callaway razr x tour irons but I haven't noticed any loss of distance. Stay with them awhile before you make a judgement on them.  Only time will tell?  Good luck.
